    Colorful iGame GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Kudan Breaks 3DMark Records

    If they claim to break any records on "stock" cards then it's already stupid. If we are talking about OC then my FE scores are much better than what we see here, not to mention guys who benched 1080Ti on LN2.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper Delidded - It's EPYC

    On my ASUS X299 TUF Mark 2 ( the cheapest one ) VRM temp under full load with 7900X@4.7GHz is in high 70'. At least on air/water cooling CPU will overheat much faster than the VRM. People who don't even own Skylake-X make the most noise about how bad it is. So der8auer who is working with ASUS...

    Intel Core i9-7960X 16-core/32-thread Processor Detailed, Benchmarked

    Ryzen in software ( like hwinfo64 ) is showing higher wattage than TDP under full load but I haven't been testing how much is from the wall. On Ryzen there is additional issue as every motherboard is setting a bit different voltages and for instance 1700X/1800X have 1.35V VID but voltage can go...

    Intel Core i9-7960X 16-core/32-thread Processor Detailed, Benchmarked

    No this is wattage tested on my 7900X: - stock/auto ~1.06V = ~200W CPU / 280W+ system( CPU load only ) - 1.15V = ~300W CPU / 380W+ system ( CPU load only ) - 1.20V = ~340W CPU / 420W+ system ( CPU load only ) - full load CPU at 1.2V + single GTX1080Ti = 620W ( CPU+GPU load ) measured with...

    Ballistix Elite 3466 MHz DDR4

    My kit can make 4200+ at more relaxed timings but doesn't like really tight timings at 3733+ ( 12-12-12 or something near ). On the other hand it works better on Ryzen boards than any G.Skill or anything else that I have and is easier to stabilize at 3200+. So far I had no dead Samsung B and I...

    TPU Ryzen BIOS Digest Issue #10

    On my Biostar X370GTN new BIOS is total fail. This is why: - none of my memory kits work at XMP settings anymore while on older BIOS all could work at 3200 stable ( higher frequency kits were limited to 3200 but could run at XMP timings etc ) - Ballistix 3466 memory is the only one which can...

    Ballistix Elite 3466 MHz DDR4

    I was testing this memory on Ryzen ~2 months ago and it's still in my Ryzen gaming rig. There are no issues at 3200 14-14-14 1.35V on ASUS/Gigabyte/Biostar but as I said, I was testing it before new AGESA release so I had no chance to test it above 3200. There is new BIOS for my Biostar ITX...

    DDR4 Frequency vs Latency

    You can count theoretical latency but it doesn't mean anything on new platforms. There are many other factors which are affecting performance like memory controller, memory ranks and many sub timings which are never in theoretical latency calculation. On new platforms, higher frequency almost...

    G.Skill Trident Z 3200 MHz C16 DDR4 (2x 8 GB)

    MSI Z170I Gaming Pro AC likes this memory more than ASUS Maximus VIII Hero. ~1.45V for 3600 but 1.4V+ is required to pass ~3400. Still great result for 8GB modules.

    G.Skill Trident Z 3200 MHz C16 DDR4 (2x 8 GB)

    I have about the same OC results on my kit but I had to update BIOS in M8 Hero to make it. On older BIOS I could barely boot at 3333 regardless of voltage or timings. On new BIOS ( 1001 ) memory is stable @3333 16-16-16 1.37V ( at 1.35V was crashing after about 30min load ). I will make some...

    2Ch vs 4Ch RAM Gaming

    This is actually common issue with new boards, especially X99. I had problems with 2 or 3 channel on 3 boards ( ASRock, MSI and ASUS ). I can make it work after switching memory or changing some settings so it's not that bad. If board can't see memory at all then I would make RMA. Problems are...

    Will Intel release a Skylake i3 or Pentium With Overclocking abilities?

    So far I haven't seen any info about it. It would be nice to see unlocked i3 or 4 core Pentium as they did in mobile series. 2 threads are already not enough for many games or other applications. Even Atoms are now 4 core while on desktops nothing is changing for years.

    Likelihood of 6 or 8 core Skylake (LGA1151)?

    @RejZoR , If you think about Ripjaws V 3000 15-15-15 then I just got one for review and it's working fine @3200 16-16-16 1.35V on Hero what is offering higher memory performance. It won't change much but wanted to add it as an info.

    Likelihood of 6 or 8 core Skylake (LGA1151)?

    Not even all ROG boards as Ranger is not good for memory overclocking. My board stuck at 3466 in dual channel and I replaced it to Hero which runs at 3733+ in dual and 4000+ in single channel. I haven't seen any special limits in Hero BIOS ( which should be about the same as Gene or Extreme in...

    Likelihood of 6 or 8 core Skylake (LGA1151)?

    Anything above 3200 has been tested by ASUS only on 2x4GB and I can already tell you that most memory kits won't work good above that clock ( already tested 7 or 8 memory kits on M8 Hero and Ranger ). 3200 is working on probably every X99 motherboard using 4x8GB kits. Not all Z170 motherboards...

    Likelihood of 6 or 8 core Skylake (LGA1151)?

    For me 5820k is better option in similar price. I mean you get more cores ( some new games and other soft can use it ) and higher memory bandwidth ( this actually barely counts in games ) and everything else is almost the same. Also every X99 motherboard is actually a high end what I can't say...

    Asus Maximus VI Hero 00 Code.

    This is often mobo failure or sometimes dead CPU. It simply can't see CPU what supposed to be "only" BIOS issue but sometimes it's more. 2 of my ASUS boards went to RMA when I had that ( force flash didn't work on both BIOS chips ) and support fixed the issue. In one case CPU died ( I'm not...

    Corsair Vengeance DDR4 issues with MSI Z107A Gaming M7

    My luck is that 3 G.Skill Ripjaws 4 kits couldn't work at XMP profiles on Z170 board and all were Samsung based, designed for X99 - 2666, 3000, 3200. 3200 c16 couldn't run stable at manual settings too. 2 Hynix kits were working fine ( both 3000 ). Ripjaws V 2x8GB 3200 C16 are working fine on...

    good bang for the buck Z170 motherboard

    For me ASRock is more reliable and has better support than most ( if not all ) other brands. In last 3 years I made at least 8+ RMA on Gigabyte boards - OC/SOC Z87/Z97 and 990FX, 7+ RMA on ASUS X79, Z77, Z87, X99, AM1 ( all ROG except AM1 ) and 4+ RMA on MSI Z77, X79, X99. In this time I made 1...

    Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 2666 MHz

    Your experience base more on place where you live than Crucial support quality. First spot where you make RMA is store where you purchased the product. Next is manufacturer - usually when store can't process the RMA. Most manufacturers are not providing direct RMA support to retail. I only make...

    Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 2666 MHz

    As far as I know Tracers won't be released soon. Next in line are Ballistix Tactical but not released yet. My Elite kit is great, especially looking at the timings. I was able to set something like 2666 CL12/13 stable at ~1.25-1.35V and up to 2750 CL10-10-11 or 3000 12-12-12 ~1.4-1.45V for...

    Thermal paste applied on your GPU / CPU, survey!

    Depends what is on stock I'm using MX4 or Gelid Supreme ( not Extreme ). Gelid Supreme is as good for my needs as MX4 but cost less ( bigger package in similar price ). However is not always available on stock. I don't like to apply Gelid Extreme and it's too expensive to use more often. I'm...
